2012 USTA SoCal Jr Sectionals

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

Hey Tennis Friends!

Last weekend, in order to feature more junior tennis on my site, I stopped by the 110th Annual Southern California Junior Sectional Championships, presented by Farmers Classic, at the Los Caballeros Racquet & Sports Club in Fountain Valley, California.
This tournament is HUGE! They had boy’s and girl’s singles and doubles in age divisions for the 10s, 12s, 14s, 16s, and 18s! As usual, there was so much going on that I couldn’t have possibly included everything that was happening in this video report. This is why I always encourage you to get out to these events, to choose for yourself the matches that you want to watch!

CORRECTION:
I misspoke when interviewing Alyza Benotto. She had, obviously, played three sets, not two.

The results for the matches that I featured in this video report are:

BOY’S 18 SINGLES Round of 16 (with seedings)
(1)Gage Brymer d. Stefan Menichella 6-2, 7-6

Gage Brymer lost in the next (quarterfinal) round, to the ninth seeded Robbie Bellamy, from Pacific Palisades. Bellamy made it to the final round where he met up with another Tennis Friend, Ernesto Escobedo, who won the boys 14 singles at the 2011 Easter Bowl. Bellamy beat Escobedo in a tough three-setter 6-7(1), 7-6(8), 7-5.
However, Brymer did not go home empty handed from this tournament. In boy’s 18 doubles, he teamed up with Dieton Baughman (they were the #3 seeds) to defeat the same Robbie Bellamy, and Gregory Garcia (the #1 seeds), in the championship 2-6, 6-3, 6-3

GIRL’S 18 SINGLES Round of 16 (with seedings)
(1)Alyza Benotto d. Meredith Xepoleas 1-6, 6-4, 6-3

GIRL’S 18 SINGLES Quarterfinal
(2) Maegan Manasse d. Dorothy Tang 3-6, 6-3, 6-2

Maegan Manasse’s win put her in the semifinal round, where she was bested by the number four seed, Ashley Dai 7-5, 6-2.
Alyza Benotto made it through to the final round where she was also bested by the Temple City resident, Ashley Dai 6-4, 6-0.
